Buying a 3d printer isn't how it works, there are services for it.
https://www.shapeways.com/create
for example (just the first that popped up, no recommendation here from me)

Painting is a cost factor of course.

Also there is a fancy online character creation tool that outputs 3d printable models.. I forgot what it was called though But yeah, getting your own character is obviously first and foremost YOUR job, to paint it is, after all, how you make it your own ;p For monsters in an army well yeah, there you gonna have a lot of costs either way.
Thanks a lot for this link! I'm really looking forward to doing the 3d print of the Doom Marine fighting demons. Gonna try this service.

Is he a top ten QB? No. Is he better than 10-15 of the starting QBs in the league? Possibly. He isn't playing because the owners thought hiring him after the kneeling situation would be bad for their bottom lines. His ability to play or not, was not much of a factor in their decisions.

They blacklisted Kapernick for years, so I don't think they're favoring any particular group.

Doubtful -- the NFL has always been a owners first league, at least for the last sixty years anyway. I mean Snyder has pretty much given the business friendly middle finger to this issue since he bought the team. Some seem to think it is only about money, and if/when Snyder starts getting less dollars because he doesn't change it that he'll cave. He is supposedly worth $2.3 billion or so. A good portion of that being the team I assume. After you have $2.3 billion, the reaction to a threat of people saying they'll stop giving you money has much less of a sting...

Welcome.. to the age of 3d printing and painting your own models ^^

That's a pretty awesome use for 3D printers, but I have to wonder how long it'd take, printing your own, to break even on the cost of the machine, the stock, to cover for the price of the models you would have bought. Plus whatever labor/costs are associated with getting the scans/plans for the models anyway.

3d printers, not just for printing untraceable firearms anymore!
